  1. I was at Wembley 1962 Wakefield beat Huddersfield then a week later lost championship playoff at Odsal gteat days more exciting than today. But then I was young and excitable going to these exotic places from Wakefield.
  2. Proper beer that 3.8proof? Drink all night.
  3. wow i didnt know that .Newley was a child actor turned singer and writer. Idle on Parade was a film about the post war army and conscription in which he sang the theme song and others i think with leslie Bricuss. i have the original EP 7inch of course. Great days going to the record shop and listening to the latest 45 single in the booth then paying 6shillings eight pence 33p to you younger guys.LPs were out of reach on my paper delivery money.
  4. Anthony Newley compilation. Strawberries ripe strawberries,shan't be round tomorrow the donkeys eaten all my Strawberries!Classic Newley. Great voice long gone now.
  5. Django Reinhardt the gypsy guitarist with the hot club de Paris.Didnt srefan Grapelli play with them? Great musician despite the loss of two fingers on one hand.
  6. What are you trying to say .Houe prices are usually set by supply and demand .popular areas will be dearer and more people wanting to move where the supply is limited will push up prices .Also the availability of finance will affect the market. Prices will always rise when supply can't meet demand. What we need is a lot mor social housing and to stop the sale of houses to sitting tenants.
  7. See Green Party manifesto. The way to go for a decent caring society. The Lib Dems proposed something similar some time ago but as usual the sheep in Britain voted ideologically .
